I have been refreshed...

Reading beautiful words is on my "Life missions" list and I take that mission very seriously, so without further ado, here are some quotes! Enjoy.
"And then my soul saw you and it kind of went, ‘Oh there you are. I’ve been looking for you.’"
Iain Thomas, I Wrote This For You
Wouldn't that be a lovely thing to feel?

From Conference...
"Imperfect people are all God has ever had to work with. That must be terribly frustrating to Him, but He deals with it - so should we. And when we see imperfection, remember that the limitation is not in the divinity of the work."
— Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

"God does not wish to break your spirit. On the contrary, He desires that you rise up and become the person you were designed to be."
—Dieter F. Uchtdorf

"Healing comes when we move away from the darkness and walk toward the hope of a brighter light. It was in the practical application of faith, hope, and charity that she not only transformed her own life but forever blessed the lives of many, many others. There may be some among you who feel darkness encroaching upon you. You may feel burdened by worry, fear, or doubt. To you, and to all of us, I repeat a wonderful and certain truth: God’s light is real. It is available to all. It gives life to all things. It has the power to soften the sting of the deepest wound. It can be a healing balm for the loneliness and sickness of our souls." —Dieter F. Uchtdorf

"Start where you are. Isn’t it wonderful to know that we don’t have to be perfect to experience the gifts of our Heavenly Father?"
—Dieter F. Uchtdorf

"The darkness will surely fade because it cannot exist in the presence of light."
—Dieter F. Uchtdorf

As you can see, I was very touched by President Uchtdorf's talk. 

And two more...

"Stars are not immortal, even they will fade. But you and I are not. - Neal A. Maxwell

"Unexpected intrusions of beauty. This is what life is."
—Saul Bellow, Herzog

My unexpected intrusion of beauty today? The falling rain and the puddles that followed this morning. Even if my shoes got soaked through.

What intrusions of beauty have you seen today? What are some of your favorite quotes? Did you watch Conference? What were the highlights for you? 

Stay gold.
